The objectives of this course are to teach the surveyor how to define and identify monuments; to understand what factors to assess when judging the validity of a monument; and to explain why better records and a better effort to document re-monumentation could eliminate disagreements among surveyors. In addition, the surveyor will grasp the concept that his or her responsibility is to preserve and protect not only the monuments he or she creates, but also the monuments set by other surveyors. This course will describe why research and other preparation are important processes when determining boundary locations.
